35 Burst results for "Eight Degrees"
"Good vaccine news just keeps on coming on the backs of really promising news. From the pfizer. Biontech and madonna now oxford astrazeneca have announced the preliminary results from their phase three trials which showed overall seventy percent efficacy as reminder madonna and visor biotechs. Vaccines both currently show around ninety. Five percent efficacy but seventy percent is still very solid. That's about where dr fauci had been saying. He'd be very pleased to see. But i overall seventy percent. Because there's a weird quirk of the oxford astrazeneca vaccine. That i as someone who is not an immunologist. Don't quite understand but hopefully we'll get more information on it in the coming days. Here's what i can tell you for now. The vaccine like the pfizer biontech one would need to be distributed in two doses however the first dose just needs to be half a dose for some reason. Doing a half dose on the first injection makes the whole vaccine overall more effective than if you got to hold doses quoting stat news. The preliminary results on the astrazeneca vaccine were based on a total one hundred. Thirty one covid nineteen cases in a study involving eleven thousand three hundred sixty three participants. The findings were perplexing to full doses of the vaccine appeared to be only sixty two percent effective at preventing disease while a half dose followed by a full dose was about ninety percent effective. That ladder analysis was conducted on a small subset of the study participants. Only two thousand seven hundred forty one a us based trial being supported by operation. Warp speed is testing the two full dose regimen. That may soon change. Astrazeneca plans to explore adding the half dose full dose regimen to its ongoing clinical trials in discussions with regulatory agencies spokesman told stat in an email and quotes and quoting from the new york times. The oxford scientists said they were still trying to understand why the vaccine was more effective at a smaller first dose. The first is supposed to prime the immune system while the second is supposed to boost its response while it seemed counter intuitive for a smaller i dose to be more effective. They said that strategy. More closely mimic. What happens with a real infection. End quotes peter openshaw professor of experimental medicine at imperial college. London explained to the associated. Press that vaccines. don't work. Like normal drugs where a higher dose produces more effects. The immune system is more complicated. Openshaw also notes that if indeed people do only need half a dose for one of the injections that's great news because it will be even cheaper to produce for more people. This was the vaccine candidate. That i was most excited about early on because it seemed like they kind of had a head start quoting the new york. Times astrazeneca's macos vaccine is designed to genetically altered in a dinner virus found in chimps. So that it harmlessly mimics the corona virus and provoke an immune response vaccine deploying. That technology has never won approval but the approach has been studied before notably in a small two thousand eighteen study of an experimental vaccine against the virus that causes middle east respiratory syndrome or mergers that viruses related to sars cov two the novel corona virus that causes covid nineteen so when covid nineteen emerged the team of scientists at oxford's jenner institute that had been leading the work on similar corona viruses. Had a head start once. The genetic code of sars cov two was published in early january. The oxford team sped to adapt their platform to the new corona virus and begin animal testing and quotes the other win in oxford. Astrazeneca's corner is unlike the pfizer. Biontech vaccine this latest one does not require any special refrigeration just standard storage and transportation temperatures of two eight degrees celsius or thirty six to forty six degrees fahrenheit and it can be stored for up to six months. The moderna vaccine requires cooler temperatures of negative four degrees fahrenheit but then can be stored at normal refrigeration temperatures after thawing in can be stored as such for a month. The pfizer biontech vaccine. Meanwhile requires dry. Ice to store at negative seventy degrees celsius or negative ninety four degrees fahrenheit s- that makes the oxford astrazeneca vaccine much more appealing for areas without the infrastructure or funding to sustain the pfizer. Biotech cold chain. And with that in mind. Astrazeneca is applying for early approval wherever it can as well as an emergency useless stained from the world health organization so that it can be made available in low income countries they plan to produce three billion doses next year and are committed to providing it at cost around the world through july. Twenty twenty one. The vaccine costs around three or four. Us dollars significantly less than the others late stage. Trials are continuing in the us. Japan russia south africa kenya and latin america and further trials are planned for other european and asian countries. So definitely more good news but watch this space for more
Finally, a Room-Temperature Superconductor
"Not Exactly, the revolution that would result if we achieved cold fusion, but it is notable that room temperature superconductivity has been achieved for the first time quoting MIT technology review room temperature superconductors, materials that conduct electricity zero resistance without needing special cooling are the sort of technological miracle that could up end daily life. They could revolutionize the electric grid and enable levitating trains among many other potential applications but until now, superconductors have had to be cool to extremely. Low temperatures which has restricted them to use as a niche technology. I'll be an important one for decades. It seemed that room temperature superconductivity might be out of reach forever. But in the last five years, a few research groups around the world have been engaged in a race to attain it in the lab and one of them just one in a paper published today in nature researchers report achieving real temperature supercar activity in a compound containing hydrogen sulfur. And Carbon at temperatures as high as fifty eight degrees Fahrenheit thirteen point three Celsius or two, hundred, Eighty, seven, point seven Kelvin the previous highest temperature had been two hundred and Sixty Kelvin or degrees Fahrenheit that she'd by a rival group at George Washington University and the Carnegie Institution in Washington DC and twenty eighteen another group at the Planck Institute for Chemistry, in Germany, achieved two hundred and fifty degrees Kelvin or negative nine point seven degrees Fahrenheit at. Around the same time like the previous records, the new record was attained under extremely high pressures roughly two and a half million times greater than that of the air we breathe. It's a landmark says Jose Flora's leave us a computational physicist at the sappy Enza University of Rome who creates models that explain high temperature superconductivity and was not directly involved in the work. The ways in which electric is generated transmitted and distributed could be fundamentally transformed by cheap and. Effective temperature superconductors bigger than a few millions of a meter about five percent of the electricity generated in the United States is lost in transmission and distribution according to the Energy Information Administration, eliminating this loss would for starters, save billions of dollars and have a significant climate impact. But room temperature superconductors wouldn't just change the system we have. They enable a whole new system transformers which are crucial to the electric grid could be made smaller cheaper and more. Efficient. So to could electric motors and generators superconducting energy storage is currently used to smooth out short term fluctuations in the electric grid but it's still remains relatively niche because it takes a lot of energy to keep superconductors cold room temperature superconductors. Especially, if they could be engineered to stand strong magnetic fields might serve as very efficient ways to store large amounts of energy for longer periods of time making renewable but intermittent energy sources like wind turbines or. Solar cells more effective, and because flowing electricity crates, magnetic fields superconductors can also be used to create powerful magnets for applications as diverse as MRI machines and levitating trains. Superconductors are of great potential importance to the nascent field of quantum computing as well. Superconducting cubits are already the basis of some of the world's most powerful quantum computers being able to make such. Cubans without having to cool them down would not only make computers simpler smaller and cheaper but. Could lead to more rapid progress in creating systems of many cubits depending on the exact properties of the superconductors that are created it remains to be seen whether scientists can devise stable compounds that are superconducting not only at ambient temperature, but also at ambient pressure. But the researchers are optimistic. They conclude their paper with this tantalizing claim quote, a robust resume temperature superconducting material that will transform the energy economy quantum information processing, and sensing may be achievable and quote.
High-Elevation Hummingbirds Evolved a Temperature Trick
"A humming birds of your garden, you've no doubt seen it flipped from flower to flower hovering midair as it sips on nectar that activity requires plenty of energy. So hummingbirds need a lot of nectar to feed their hungry metabolism's some of them probably drink two or three times. The Body Mass Index Everyday Andrew McCartney an ornithologist at the University of Pretoria in south. Africa. mckanie and his colleagues have studied hummingbirds extreme. In the Peruvian Andes to survive, they're the tiny birds have developed a few tricks for one their blood cells are unusually efficient at transporting oxygen. It's more difficult to hover in the high altitude thin air, and so the humming birds at the higher elevations much prone to pushing while they feed. So that does seem to be one way in which try and reduce the energy expenditure. Now, Macaque Nana's colleagues have found another energy-saving adaptation. The High Mountain hummingbirds can lower their body temperature by extreme amounts of night going into a state called torpor. tencent appearances, they essentially did they. That's unresponsive. The scientists caught six species of Andy and hummingbirds and monitor their temperatures throughout night and day, and they found that all six species could enter some type torpor. They lower their body temperatures from about one hundred degrees Fahrenheit by day to as low as thirty eight degrees Fahrenheit at night and being essentially conserves energy. The details are in the journal biology letters although some of the birds low body temperatures are on par with those of hibernating mammals. It's important to note that this is not fully fledged hibernation, which is a longer term response. True hibernation has only been documented in one bird so far at least common poor will in the US south. West one of my career goals is to find second harmonizing but in the Andes, he says, it's going to be the first place he looks.
Humans Have Caused the Most Dramatic Climate Change in 3 Million Years
"Recently Assad with some research colleagues at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research, a look at a brand new science article in which are climate model for the first time had recreated the climate on earth over the last three million years, which covers the entire geological pleistocene epoch. The Pleistocene is so important as it constitutes a point of reference for life on. Earth. Because although sure our planet has existed for four point, five, billion years it's only in the last million years. That earth has looked at least roughly in the way as we know it, the continents were roughly where they are today. The North and South Poles were covered with ice. The atmosphere had a similar chemical composition to what we have today. Planet, Earth. Our earth has only existed for three million years. All, comparisons further back in time are quite meaningless. And the manuscript I hold in my hand is not just reaching. My brain is also striking straight into my heart. A deep humility settles in when look at the graph showing the variations in mean global temperature on earth over the past three, million years it shows that we have never throughout the whole plasticine exceeded two degrees global warming compared to our pre industrial average temperature of approximately fourteen degrees. Never. This means that Earth despite all the stresses and natural shocks from fluctuations and Solar Radiation Volcanic eruptions, asteroid impacts and earthquakes has regulated itself within an incredibly narrow range minus four degrees. Celsius were in deep ice age plus two degree Celsius. We're in a warm interglacial period lasting three million years. It's absolutely incredible. Especially since we know why. It's earth's ability to self regulate the ability of the oceans to absorb and store heat the ability of the ice sheets to reflect solar radiation the ability of the forests to absorb carbon dioxide and the ability to be a safe and store greenhouse gases. The planet is a biophysical self playing piano whose music sheet stays. Within the minus four plus to scale. If that is not caused for humidity than I do not know what humidity is. And a deep concern in hundred and fifty years. In the geological blink of an eye, we risk now tearing this Planetary Symphony to shreds. Let that sink in. The global average temperature is now changing hundred and seventy times faster than over the last seven thousand years and it's doing. So in the wrong direction upwards when the current orbital forcing meaning are distance to the sun and the current low level of solar activity means that the temperature should in fact, be slowing down. You don't have to be a physicist to understand that we have a problem. Climate skeptics like to argue that historically the climate has fluctuated so much. So why shouldn't it be fluctuating now? Obviously. It fluctuates. But we are now racing towards plus three to plus four degrees warming. Sceptics like to bring up the little ice age the time when Swedish King Call The tenth Gustav Marched His army across the deep frozen great belt and the little belt in sixteen fifty eight to beat the Danes or that the vikings grew grapes in Greenland during the medieval warm period. Yes. Of course, this is true but it all occurred within the natural boundaries of minus four and plus two degrees. And it's here within this sweet spot that we must remain for our own sakes and our future? In August two, thousand, eighteen at the peak of that year's drought and fires in Sweden and Europe. We published a scientific paper where we tried to establish whether we are at risk of pushing the entire planet away from its current state of equilibrium, the Holocene epoch where we have been since the last ice age. This is fundamental. Our Planet Earth can be in three different states. It can be in a deep ice age as it was twenty thousand years ago with large is. Extending over the northern and Southern Hemisphere with over two kilometers of ice above our heads here in Sweden an ice extending as far south as Berlin. This is an equilibrium state as it is not only lower solar radiation that keeps earth in an ice age. It is also the feedbacks caused by ice. As the ice sheets grow earth gets whiter, which means that more more incoming heat from the sun is reflected back to space more ice means it gets colder which means even more is and suddenly you have a self reinforcing mechanism. This is what makes an ice age and equilibrium earth remains. They're not only because of the external forces from the sun but also thanks to these inbuilt biophysical processes in this case, the color of ice. Earth can also be in an interglacial an intermediate state, which is what we have today where was still have permanent is sites at the polls and we have glaciers on land and the biosphere with forests, grasslands, and lakes roughly as Earth as we know it. It is these two equilibrium states and only these two states that the planet has been over the last three million years that is during the entire Pleistocene. But then there is a third state when earth tips over from self cooling feedback loops to self heating feedback loops, which leads to an inevitable journey to becoming a hot tropical planet that is four, five, six, potentially seven, eight degrees warmer than today where in principle, all the ice has gone and the surface of the ocean is more than fifty meters higher than it is today and where the conditions for live is fundamentally different all over the entire planet. This is what we call hothouse earth. Or Highs Zaid hot time in German where the article when we published it drew so much attention doing this burning heat wave in the summer of twenty eighteen that highs Zaid was chosen as the word of the year in Germany. In this research, we tried for the first time to identify the global mean temperature at which we are in danger of tipping over from our current state, the Holocene interglacial, and embarking on a journey that would inevitably take us to highlight our conclusion is that we cannot exclude that the planetary threshold. The tipping point where we kickoff unstoppable processes of self amplified warming is at two degrees. Bear in mind we are today at one point one very mind were moving fast along a path that reaches one point five in potentially only twenty, thirty years and two degrees in forty fifty years. This is one I would argue of the biggest. Challenges of all to test whether we are right. Can the planet cope with or Canet not cope with higher temperatures than two degrees? But. My conclusion based on the knowledge we have today is that the planetary threshold to avoid triggering high Zaid is most likely at two degrees. Of course, it's not so that Earth will fall off a cliff at two degrees. The risk is rather that we would then pass a threshold where the shift towards hindsight would become unstoppable. In other words, we face an urgency at the timeframe whether we pushed the on button on not triggering stoppable warming is within the next few decades meaning essentially. Now, if we pressed the UNBUTTON and kick off the great planetary machinery with feedback loops causing self warming, then the full impacts may play out over three four, five, hundred years before we reach a new equilibrium state hothouse. A planet with over ten meters, sea level rise temperatures, and extreme droughts, floods, and heatwaves making large parts of earth uninhabitable a planet we do not want a planet that cannot support US humans. This requires from us that we understand two different time horizons. The short term time of commitment. When do we push the unbutton but then also the long term time horizon when we have the full impact hitting on people these are different but ethically, I would argue only the trigger moment counts, we cannot leave a damaged planet beyond repair to future generations. So to summarize the decisive moment when we press don't press the button lies within the next ten to twenty years. With consequences for all future generations a moral, bum. Are High site article concluded that degree Celsius is our ultimate planetary threshold that we need to stay away from. This article actually came out six months before our climate modeling showed that we've never exceeded two degrees throughout the whole pleistocene, the last three million years. In Two thousand nine, our planetary boundaries size showed that one point five degrees is a boundary we should not transgress because then we enter a danger zone of uncertainty. So perhaps you do understand my feeling a deep concern of humility in the face of our latest scientific findings, which really only says, one thing tipping points are real and if they're crossed, they lead to unstoppable changes, which requires a new relationship between us and our planet, and that we realize that we are facing a new ethics. What we do today will determine the future on earth for all our children and their children.
"Org. How are you guys doing this morning? I'm much better now that I'm not. Blurry? You. Had It on some sort of beauty mode where where you or just glowing in radiant and the rest of everything behind you was blurred and. Unapproachable. Didn't even see that. Beauty Mode on yours Jeff. REDACT right. I don't even have my camera on broke now. Okay. So, let's talk real quick. What are you guys working on Javer you in your truck? My truck I mean in the mid level hundred and twenty eight acres why Mattis County were building a modern form style We're having a meeting right now with the trim carpenters and the homeowner. Talking about what our cabinets you're gonNA look like bricker. We'll finish up today or tomorrow and Just a beautiful setting out here on top of the hill. That's fantastic. Okay. So tell us about the houses you've been under. Pam. Well. I I wanted to tell Jeff I dr pepper. This weekend. Nice what? About that, what did you say you Dr Pepper Your Grill? Yeah. Because Jeff said that that's what he used to clean his grill. So I I was. Rule in this weekend I thought we'll try that. So I picked up a leader of Dr Pepper and. took. A. Garbage can LID and turned it upside down and set my great down in it. Pour that Dr Pepper over it. I'm GonNa take something. For drinking another Dr Pepper. It, really clean it. It did it just it fizzed all that runoff. It was awesome. You if you want to boil the oil out of your driveway, put some Dr Pepper on it. a couple of months ago I had the old changed my truck and the godless all can underneath the truck and I get home and I thought I was leaking oil. So I'm going to put the Dr Pepper all night. While I can't believe that Dr Pepper has become a thorough cleaning product on the fix. Partly. What's leftover when you're done cleaning strike? Well, what if you're like a mountain dew fan does that work? You know I don't I don't. I can't. I can't comment on that because I've never tried to mountain dew. Okay. All right. So Am I gonNA waste of buck on out and do see if it works. All right. So. Big Show today, I had the most colossal day in in in in the world ever had to move my daughter to one of the big schools in the state. So I did that while I was there popped a tyre on campus. So had to pull over the road it only one hundred and thirty eight degrees with no trees but I did change the tire into the spare. So this this took me a moment and wore me out because you know on modern cars, they put little tiny tiny Jacks in there you know to Jack up the car. So it's just that much more difficult. Anyway no problem got done. Got Back up on the road and home and drove. Driveway and everything was wet
Are There Months When You Shouldn't Eat Raw Oysters?
"You know that every month sands? May June July and August? Has the letter are in its name? Don't look it up. Take my word for it. Did you also know there's an old wives tale that you shouldn't eat raw oysters in months without the letter are in it once again. You don't need to look it up. I'M NOT GONNA. Lie To you the logic behind this is that if you eat oysters during these months? Months you could get sick. Sounds like crazy talk right, and perhaps so perhaps not, but if you think about it, the months without an our fall during the summer in the Northern Hemisphere and the truth is that if you eat raw oysters in the summer, you do run the risk of getting violently sick. That's because and let me tell you. This does not come from an old wife. When the weather is warm, bacteria known as Vibrio, vulnificus and Vibrio Para hemolytic. Thrive and these pathogens multiply like nobody's business in warm water, especially in the Gulf of Mexico where there are a lot of voice, tres harvested so eating raw oysters during the summer theoretically could increase your chances of becoming sick, unlike chicken, pork or hamburger, all of which stink to high heaven when they go bad oysters do not so you can't tell when an oyster has turned the corner. They're also usually not rancid to the taste. However, you'll feel the effects about twenty four to forty eight hours after eating and. That's gone bad with Vibrio, chills fever, vomiting diarrhea. You know the drill in some people, high doses of Vibrio can actually be life threatening, especially, the elderly those with compromised immune systems and people who drink too much alcohol, but let's be clear. Infections caused by all Vibrio. Species are rare. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates. There are about eighty thousand vibrio illnesses of all types. Each year in the United States more than half are related to eating contaminated food, the most common strain. Vibrio Para Hema. lickochops is responsible for forty five thousand illnesses annually. Those numbers are a drop in the bucket, compared to sow Manila which the CDC says is responsible for more than one million illnesses each year. Those eating oysters harvested from the Gulf coast where the water typically is warmer than along the east and west coasts should be on guard. That's because Vibrio thrives on the water temperature near sixty eight degrees, Fahrenheit, or twenty degrees Celsius, so if you're going to saddle up to an oyster bar during the summer months, and our concern, whether these slimy suckers are contaminated well, ask the chef. Could from most chefs are reliable and only buy from reputable fisheries and purveyors they trust, or you can just stick to the cold water, east or west coast oysters until the chillier months return in the Gulf.

The Good Pirate
"Welcome to kiss myths and mysteries. I'm your host crumb today. I'm continuing my investigation into the myths and mysteries surrounding pirates in one individual in particular because not all pirates were that evil that raped and pillaged their way up various villages along the coast. One such individual who was a pirate was Francis Drake. He was born in fifteen forty. Two by fifteen seventy six. He was the queen's favor and was directed to sail to a secret location one. She only disclosed to her inner circle. The difficulty in determining the location isn't honest return after circumnavigating the world upon his arrival back in England the coin hat all his maps and shipped logs locked up to this day. Few of these documents have been released despite. This history has revealed that Spain had blocked. Most of the trade routes England had used and she had found one end of the fabled northwest passage and the drake was to establish the other end meanwhile amateur to story and Robert Ward thinks. Drake was on a secret mission to find the northwest passage. And that's why he was sailing so far up the west coast. The idea is drake sailed up the coast. Until he found something he thought was the northwest passage perhaps Strait of Juan de Fuca but drake's bad located not far from point Reyes California and fourteen other sides claimed to be where in fifteen seventy nine drake spent sixty eight days now. He spent those sixty eight days because he needed a place to make repairs. Which involves something called careening? This is where the ship was pulled completely out of the water so that our whole be made free of worms barnacles the location of California's raise for the sixty eight day. Stay and repair of the ship are based on the area code. Drakes Bay fit in maps description of the bay where he stayed and a page from a ship's log that listed the side as thirty eight degrees north latitude and a brass plaque. The description of Indians found there but the plaque was declared a fake in nineteen thirty six and the fact that the Indians lived off. Acorns was never mentioned. And that the shape of the Bay but Oregon's whale cove also fits the shape of the bay on the map but the Indians were described as living in huts that were partially below ground. When the University of Oregon Examining area in the cove they found that just as described on the page of the ship slog the remnants of a native American hut partly underground near the side. Number of English coins were found that dated back to just before. Drake set sail. Also there was a document a firsthand description based on the observation of eight of his crew. That stated that they had stopped at forty four degrees north latitude. It would seem that a all the sites that claim to be were drake spent that summer of sixty eight days. Only the organ location forty four degrees north latitude which is exactly well. Co has the most real physical evidence of his visit. If you're driving up the Oregon coast be sure to stop at the town of Depot. Bake and enjoy the small town hospitality. Drive another mile and a half to whale cove and try to imagine what it was like for Sir Francis. Drake back in fifteen seventy nine but the debate. Over the location of Drake's North American stop rages on and despite evidence pointing at Oregon's well only put to rest when England releases all drake's maps and logs from his trip around the

Against All Odds: Lone Survivor
"Some survival stories hinge on strength of will a person's raw determination to live other times science steps in and saves the day Anna Hogan home worked as a radiologist at the University Hospital of North Norway. She made history there in nineteen ninety nine but on the operating table. Her remarkable incident began with a skiing trip after work with some colleagues. They were all avid skiers who were familiar with the local mountains and the conditions that day were ideal sunny with lots of fresh powder. They were only a few runs in. When Anna tripped losing her skis tumbled and slid toward a frozen stream when she hit the ice broke and her upper half was pulled into the frigid rushing. Water her friends ray able to reach her in grabbed her boots before the current could pull her all the way under. They phoned for help beneath the water. Bogging home struggled upward and managed to reach the airspace under the ice. She could breathe but her clothes were soaked.

So if us trying to catch that as roles maybe catch a little bit of winter like feel. Yeah. You can head out maybe watch them later on. But it's not going gonna feel like winter year across Indianapolis for today or even into tomorrow that we are looking at a few changes as we head into the upcoming weekend. Even think we're starting off twenty eight nineteen rather on a cold. No, let's get through today though. Because today is going to be a bit of a change temperatures are going to warm into the fifties. And then we're also factoring in a better chance of rain to start off the later half of this morning. So once we head into ten eleven o'clock. That's when we're factoring in a better chance of rain and temperatures, they're climbing to the mid forties. And right now, rain not too far away in fact than since starting to see some pockets of some moderate to heavy rain as we widen out the view, that's really just the beginning. Because we are still tracking additional showers now down in Arkansas. We have bands of rain now extending out like fingers here in Tennessee Kentucky zone headed in our general direction. And that's going to impact us during the later portion of this morning and into this afternoon. It's also gonna. A pack a punch in the wind departments. So we're under the gun for seeing quite an active day for today. Feature. Cast takes us through the remainder of the morning. Some showers will begin to spread in here by ten thirty. They'll be on and off during the afternoon. So we will see breaks, but we will see also some heavy showers as well. And I think we're going to hold off on the heaviest stuff. Once everyone is heading home from work later on tonight breaks here and there and then we'll see some light rain fill in overnight into early. Friday. Winds are also going to pick up, and I think they'll exceed about thirty miles per hour heading into dinnertime directly out of the south. Now, this is going to provide us with warm air for today, but it will be fairly windy even into tonight and into early tomorrow so temperatures for today, we'll respond to that windy south wind will warm into the lower fifty s for this afternoon, except we're going to pair that up with a pretty decent. Chance of rain showers later on today are forecasted high. Well, above the average high. We should be at about thirty six just not the case today. We're nowhere near the record high though, set back in two thousand and eight at sixty. Eighty eight degrees. Everybody in the fifties today. Fifty two up in Kokomo fifty two also in Lafayette, and then later on tonight overnight, low temperatures will hold steady in the mid to lower fifties as well. So really not budging much in the temperature department overnight and into early tomorrow morning. In fact, our highs for tomorrow hit during the day. Once we start to see this cold front, so it's going to funnel in some significantly warmer air, so you're gonna feel a bit of a difference during the day tomorrow, scattered showers. We'll start off the day on Friday. Once we head into ten o'clock. We'll start to see a lot of the shower activity in eastern portions of the state that cloud deck begins to clear out as well.
